So last night, my old girl (13 y/o YLF) went outside after supper and collapsed trying to come up a single step. She popped right back up and was able to make it inside with little issue. Once inside, she couldn't seem to keep her legs under her. By the time we got to the vet, she was doing better, but still shaking like crazy. Vet said the symptoms sounded a lot like Geriatric Ideopathic Vestibular Disease. She told me to watch for the eye twitching (googly eyes). Later that night, Saint began having more issues keeping her balance and even fell from a stationary standing position hard this morning. She is, otherwise, extremely healthy (other than hearing loss) and happy. Vet says this condition typically resolves itself in a couple of weeks.
Does anyone else have experience going through this with a dog?
What is the best way to take care of her in the interim? I don't want her hurting herself.
